Understanding and Loving Our Muslim Neighbors

In our increasingly divided world, confusion and misunderstanding abound, including confusion about Islam. How, as those commanded to love our neighbors, do we respond to radical Islam, and to violence against Muslims? Many Muslims are also children of Abraham, descendants of Ishmael earnestly seeking to follow God. We want to explore a bit of the history of Islam and discuss ways Christians can and are reach Muslim neighbors with Christ’s love.

Join us and invite friends for this event that will challenge you to Love Your Muslim Neighbor.

“Although we live in prophetic times 'when men will not put up with sound doctrine,' my good friend Nancy Leigh courageously and tirelessly upholds timeless truths from the Word of God. Rowing upstream against the tide of culture, Revive Our Hearts provides a wide wake in which we can find safe, trustworthy teaching and the confidence of God's favor. I heartily commend the ministry of Revive Our Hearts, as well as the fine character of my friend, Nancy Leigh.” - Joni Eareckson Tada, Joni and Friends International Disability Center

Screen Shot 2019-02-09 at 11.35.21 AM.png

“The ministry of Revive Our Hearts has impacted my life in immeasurable ways. As a member of Generation X, I grew up without ever hearing the message of biblical womanhood in church. God used Nancy and the ROH team to teach me His plan for my marriage, mothering, and vision of ministry. I don't know any other organization that so consistently connects biblical truth with practical application while empowering women to live like God created them to. Thank you ROH!” - Erin Davis, Graffiti Ministries
